Disabled Sailing Association of BC (DSA)

  • Social Gatherings & Recreation

Enriching lives of people with disabilities, the DSA allows sailors to use the Martin 16, a fully adapted and accessible sailboat. You may sail by yourself or with an instructor on board. Adaptive sailing offers a sport with a higher level of independence for participants. Sailors compete alongside able-bodied participants. The DSA is affiliated with the Sam Sullivan Disability Foundation.

Programs are located in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, and Ladysmith and are available to children ages 8+ and adults. DSA operates at the Jericho Sailing Centre from late May to late August. 7 sails are offered per day, Wednesday to Sunday, 11 AM - 5 PM. Each sail is 1 hour. Registration and booking ahead of time are required.
